Los Angeles, CA, July 17, 2012 – Launching an environmentally themed Kickstarter campaign, independent filmmakers Jonathan Ehlers, Patrick Ward-Perkins, and Jason Radspinner of LoneShark Studios began raising funds today for their feature-length, Environmental Sci-Fi Thriller, VIVARIUM.
VIVARIUM is set in a dystopian future where all plant life on Earth has been wiped out due to biological warfare. In that world, the only way to experience nature is in the corporate controlled VIVARIUM, a virtual reality of pristine Earth, as it once was. VIVARIUM explores the dynamics of humanity in a world devoid of sunlight, fresh air, and the beauty of a flower; and most importantly, how far heroes will go to get it back.
These independent filmmakers plan to make a film that not only fulfills moviegoer expectations for an action packed, Sci-Fi Thriller with a good story, but one that calls attention to a growing environmental upheaval.
“In supporting the film’s strong environmental message, we’re committed to making VIVARIUM using environmentally sustainable film making methods. The film will be carbon neutral, we’ll have no plastic bottles on set, and we’re paying it forward with our eco-friendly rewards in the Kickstarter campaign,” said Patrick Ward- Perkins, one of the creators of the high-concept film.
Combining the natural production value of Southern California wilderness with affordable digital technology, Lone Shark aims to make the film with a budget of under $100,000. “The film will showcase settings that are themselves under the threat of disappearing – with looming California state park closures due to deep budget cuts, this issue is all too present,” said Natalie Baack, producer of THE ACTIVIST, the 2010 winner of Best of the Fest: LA Shorts Film Fest.
Backers of the Kickstarter campaign will receive a variety of generous rewards including downloads of the film, a certificate commemorating trees planted by the VIVARIUM filmmakers for every backer of the campaign, commemorative posters (designed by graphic artist Mike Klay, founder of PowerSlide Design Company), and unique experiences such as tactical training with the actors. The campaign concludes on August 15th, 2012.
